It was with great sadness we received the news that Arne Ophaug had passed away after a period with cancer treatment. Many colleagues took a last farewell in the funeral at Fedje last Friday, the place where he grew up and where he and Maria now had a holiday residence. Arne had been in charge of our kitchen since we started in 1995 and from 1999 took over as Head of Services. Outside of term time, Arne was responsible for the operation of our Red Cross Summer camps for many years.  For his long and faithful service, he received a special invitation from Queen Sonja to a reception in the Palace gardens in 2016. He retired in the summer of 2017. Arne fed more than 2000 students and countless visitors. Colleagues remember him fondly for his humour and for leading by example. You could always count on Arne. Our thoughts go to Maria and the rest of the family.
